Hazardous waste items may be brought to the Public Works yard on October 5, 2013 as part of the regional Household Hazardous Waste Day. Public Works is the only facility collecting hazardous waste (oil based paints, gasoline, etc.). Therefore, please mark your calendar if you have hazardous waste to be disposed of.
Important all other items that have traditionally been brought to Public Works may be taken directly to the Pine Tree Waste facility in Hampden (or, to WESCO or Evergreen). This is not a free service and residents will be asked to pay for disposal of materials based on weight.
